Although this outstanding arrangement is accessible by even very young full orchestras, every section has the melody at various times, and each variation is represented with a different texture and accompaniment, keeping the lively dance tune fresh and invigorating as the piece catapults toward the surprise presto ending! Thoughtful use of percussion adds to the colorful scoring. Students will love this high-energy delight from the Renaissance era.
